Terrace Bruehl

If you find yourself driving through Dresden, be sure to ask where the Elbe Embankment or otherwise Bruhl's Terrace is located. Going upstairs, you can admire the Elbe.

In the XVI century. the promenade in the center of old Dresden, stretching for about half a kilometer between the Augustus bridge (Augustusbrücke) and the Carola bridge (Carolabrücke), was part of the Dresden fortress wall, but over time its role changed. It became known as the Brühlsche Terrasse, named after Count von Bruhl, by whose order a palace, a gazebo and galleries were built here, a garden was built. The buildings along the boardwalk are Neo-Baroque and Neo-Renaissance.

The name Balcony of Europe appeared at the beginning of the 19th century, after which very often this name, instead of the Bruhl Terrace, was used in literature. In 1814, Prince Nikolai Repnin-Volkonsky, Governor General of Saxony, ordered the terrace to be made available to the public.

The architect Gottlob Friedrich Tormayer was commissioned to build a wide front staircase. She was decorated with two lions by Christian Gottlieb Kün. In 1820, the Terrassenufer embankment was built under the terrace. To make it easier to get to the terrace, made passages with Münzgasse in 1848 and with Georg Troy-Platz in 1890.

Climbing up to Bruhl's terrace, you can admire the Elbe and the panorama of the opposite shore.
